Code freeze for 4.0.x branch is set to end of October and branch will be
EOLed in November, just in 3-4 months. Migrating 3.6 MABs to 4.0 MAB is like
watching the same movie all over again - you know what will happen. Bugs
will be confirmed, got MAB status (or not) and usually nothing will happen
till next MAB moving round. Probably all current MABs are reproducible in
master, so should be marked against it and then backported (if possible) to
4.1.x or 4.0.x (if it is still alive). 
I think that all this MAB per branch procedure should be reinvented together
with the devs - the question is how to get their attention to help users by
fixing major and annoying issues, even by slowing down introduction of new
